Hopsin began recording his debut project Emurge in 2002 and was eventually released locally in 2003, copies of the project are very sparse and hard to find, a bootleg version appeared online in 2008 and had many extra songs on it, however to this day the album has never been released officially.[9] Hopsin had initially signed with Ruthless Records in 2007 and even began recording his debut album as early as 2004.[10] He was originally hailed as one of the driving forces behind attempting to bring Ruthless Records back to previous glory.[11] Hopsin's lead single from his debut album "Pans in the Kitchen" was released on May 27, 2008.[12] The album was set to be self-produced by Hopsin and feature no collaborations with other artists.[11] However his debut album, Gazing at the Moonlight was not released until October 27, 2009, with little to no promotion.[13] Shortly after the album's release, Hopsin sought his release from Ruthless Records due to lack of financial compensation, artist support, and promotion.[14] Shortly before the departure from Ruthless Records, Hopsin founded his own independent label, Funk Volume, with Damien Ritter. SwizZz, Damien Ritter's younger brother and a former classmate of Hopsin at Monroe High, was the first artist to be signed to Funk Volume. Shortly after launching Funk Volume, both Hopsin and SwizZz released a collaborative mixtape titled Haywire in June 2009 to promote the label.[15] Funk Volume originally wanted to sell it for retail sale, but were unable due to Hopsin still being contracted by Ruthless Records at the time.[16] On mixtape website DatPiff, it has been certified Gold for being downloaded over 100,000 times and it later made available for purchase for digital download via iTunes and Amazon.com.
